Point Source Youth
More than a million youth in the US experience homelessness each year; between 27% and 40% of them are LGBTQ. There is a severe lack of services for these youth, and of the services that do exist, few work to prevent youth from becoming homeless in the first place.
Point Source Youth is a registered 501(c)3 working to implement, research and scale three interventions – Family and Kinship Strengthening, Short-Term Host Homes, and Rapid Rehousing – that successfully prevent youth homelessness in the UK, Canada, Australia, and a handful of US cities. The Point Source Youth Pilot Project will apply the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) Framework to End Homelessness in a workable, scalable, and measurable effort to fund and implement these three interventions, with the ultimate goal of expanding the project into a number of localities across the US.See more
